No one wants to live in a home that’s not safe, yet many people are not sure how to make their home safer. When you consider that a burglary happens every minute in the U.S., it is easy to see why this is a concern. At Spaceman Storage, we cannot guarantee that your home will not fall victim to a break-in, but we can provide these tips to help you lower the chances of being a victim.
- Home Automation
- Install a Security System
- Make the Outside of Your Home Look More Secure
- Get Your Valuable Belongings Out of Your Home
One of the best ways to keep people out of your home is to use home automation. You can set up smart lights that you can turn on and off from your phone – no matter where you are – and smart curtains you can open and close. The old trick of putting lights and/or curtains on schedules just makes it more obvious that you are not home to anyone who is watching your home.
If you want your home to be secured at all times, then a home security system is your best option. Depending on which one you choose, it may include cameras set up around your property. You could install a video doorbell that shows you what is happening outside the door. You could install cameras both inside your home and outside of it, then control them with an app on your phone. This is a great way to always know what is going on at your home, no matter where you are.
If you cannot afford to install a security system, you can take steps to make potential burglars believe that you have done so. This can be as easy as putting a security system in the window. If you have overgrown bushes, trim them so that there is no where to hide and scope out your house. You can even purchase dummy red lights that blink on and off to indicate that there is a security system installed.
If there is one item that you are particularly nervous about, consider moving it to a different location. Even if you have a security system installed, if you do not feel that your items are safe, then we recommend moving them to Spaceman Storage. We have secured storage to fit all needs and available in all sizes.
